Query: NC_006831:4500 Ehrlichia ruminantium str. Gardel, complete genome

Lineage: Ehrlichia ruminantium; Ehrlichia; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Obligate intracellular bacterium and causative agent of heartwater. This organism causes heartwater, a disease with a high mortality rate that affects both wild and domesticated ruminants in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of the Caribbean. The name heartwater refers to the hydropericardium (excessive fluid in the sac surrounding the heart) commonly found associated with infection. This organism is found in membrane-bound vacuoles in endothelial cells and neutrophils and is an obligate intracellular parasite.

Subject: NC_007798:652317 Neorickettsia sennetsu str. Miyayama, complete genome

Lineage: Neorickettsia sennetsu; Neorickettsia; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was first described in 1953 in Japan as causing Sennetsu fever. Causes an infectious mononucleosis-like disease. Like other Ehrlichia, this organism is an obligate intracellular pathogen. It can be transmitted from fish flukes (trematodes) to humans, and was one of the first Ehrlichia that was found to cause a human-specific illness.
